A beautiful book to remedy what ails us all today. May writes about a period in her life when the only way for her to heal was by wintering,; a drawing in of oneself, taking joy in the simple things, disconnecting from today's technological mania, and tuning back into nature, and the nature of ourselves. In a time when we've all needed to spend wintering, this book is a joy, and a timely one. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Hosts of the popular Ladygang podcast, Keltie, Becca and Jac bring forth an empowering and funny guide to being your own version of a “lady” in the twenty-first century. A great light-hearted read that is relatable, hilarious, serious and vulnerable. If you’re a mid-to-late 20’s lady and need some guidance for getting your life together, this book will leave you feeling whole and appreciative of being able to peer into these women's lives. I highly recommend checking out their podcast! ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

Dugdale turns to a medieval text called the ars moriendi for guidance in preparing for death. That text proposes that patience, hope, humility, faith, and "letting go" are essential as the final hour approaches. Dugdale believes a purposeful, productive life should include recognition of our finitude, so that those traits are naturally with us at the end. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Don't squinch your face when you see this book is about the rosary. This new work by a husband and wife team is about finding a new process of meditation and prayer. Spiritual but NOT preachy, it is insightful and meaningful, delving into the lore of ancient rosary practice (before Christianity) and its value in today's chaotic times. It is also a personal story that travels through many paths on the way to an intimate understanding of Divine Feminism that two brave people chose to share with us. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Part self-help piece, part raw memoir, this new book by TV executive Tara Schuster is a practical guide to re-sorting out your life and working to prioritize your own mental health and live a happier life. The cover and bold title pulled me in, and reading Tara’s life struggle and seeing how far she’s come for healing herself was beautiful. The personal stories and helpful advice were well balanced with Schuster’s humor and modern writing style. A great book to lift your spirits! ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
